Knocknaboley is the name of a townland, though obviously it originally applied to a hill, and indeed may have referred to the same peak as Corriebracks.   Corriebracks is the 467th highest place in Ireland.

Flat, undistinguished peak, sometimes useful in passing.
Short Summary created by simon3  7 Jun 2013
Corriebracks is an extremely flat summit with no particular feature on the top apart from a small somewhat near the highest point. It has reasonably good long range views from the top, including the Silsean and Moanbane area. It could be considered as a pair with Church Mountain to the NW.
One way of reaching the top is by starting from the forest entrance N 97440174 A. Follow the track as far as it goes and then beyond in the same SE direction until you reach a boggy ride. Turn right (SW) up this and head for the summit, leaving the forest at around N9726 0081 B. The top is around 730m SW of there over thick heather. (Note, as of 2011, the track is not fully shown on the OS 1:50k).
It's also possible to reach the top from Lobawn, or using a track from Luglass to the north or from Church Mountain. It is possible therefore to use Corriebracks in bigger walks. Linkback: Picture about mountain Corriebracks in area Dublin/Wicklow, Ireland

On Saturday 25th Oct 2008 a Piper PA-28 Cherokee single-engined aircraft crashed here. This point N 96795 00090 C is around 200m from and 20m lower than the very indistinct top of Corriebracks, one of the flattest summits of Wicklow.

As of the following weekend there was no wreckage other than some small scraps of fibreglass. Even the ground has been flattened out.

There were four fatally injured victims of the crash, three from one family and a friend, who were all on the way from Gloucestershire Airport to Kilrush Airport in Co Kildare.
I'm sure all the members of and visitors to MountainViews would wish me to express our condolences to the friends and remaining family of the deceased. Linkback:

If we were giving out awards for the most nondescript summit in Wicklow, Corriebracks would be right up there with the best of them. It's one of those mountains where you're not quite sure if you've reached the summit or not, so you spend fifteen minutes tramping about looking for the highest point. The photo shows the general area of the summit. It doesn't show the washing machines, plastic bags, and other assorted junk dumped in the col between Corriebracks and Church Mountain. Shameful.

Hurry-backs-I dont think so!

Climbed Corriebracks on 12-9-11 in very high winds due to the remnants of hurricane Katia sweeping Ireland.Parked at small clearing (enough for maybe 2 cars) at yellow and black barrier (S9781799895 D) at the end of L8349 road.I then followed the road/track for another 150m until I came to a sign warning about Tree felling in the area(S9774000769 E).I took a right (East) turn and followed the edge of the forestry which brings you to point S9718999810 F.From here it is slog through knee deep purple heather and hidden holes filled with water to the summit. Very good views all around-Table mt,Lobawn,Lug etc.I returned via the memorial at the plane crash site and followed previous route back to car.45 mins round trip. Linkback:

I walked from Lobawn across by the flanks of Corriebracks to Church Mountain on Sunday 20-Feb-05. The track which flanks the Corriebracks is very bad. We saw quad bikes in the heather up on the Corriebracks as we passed by. As one gets closer to Corriebracks Pass (G. R. N957009 G), the track gets better. Linkback:
